It happened one night beneath the moon.
When the leaves floated down from the trees.
And the next thing i knew, i was up right beside you,
with my soft green face smiling beside you.

And we danced slowly, waltzed methodically all over the ground,
hurry now before we must return to trees. Your arms of green, you are my
king and i am, i'm the queen of leaves.

The insects were quite confused, and the frogs well they seemed quite amused.
But all i know is you're standing beside me, with your soft green face smiling beside me.

    General CommentAww...it's like a forest love tale.
    Quite a swell song. I love how Eisley can do that, make a song about forest folks in love. Not just another love song. And that reminds me of Cursive's "Driftwood" too.

    General Commentthis is how the lyrics go in the version that i have (not sure how many are out there):

    It happened one night 'neath the moon
    When the leaves floated down from the trees
    And the next thing I knew, I was up right beside you
    With my soft green face, smiling beside you

    As we danced slowly, waltzed methodically all over the ground
    Hurry now, before we must return to trees

    The insects were quite confused
    And the frogs, well, they seemed quite amused
    But all I know is you're standing beside me
    With your soft green face, smiling beside me

    As we danced slowly, waltzed methodically all over the ground
    Hurry now, before we must return to trees

    And if you doubted the possibilities, my love, no way
    See how the trees will surrender their hair so love can have it's way?
    And I'm wondering, would you stay with me?
    We'll leave this place immediately with nothing in our hands
    It doesn't matter, you know, you have to know

    As we danced slowly, waltzed methodically all over the ground
    Hurry now, before we must return to trees

    You, you are my king, you are my king
    And I am, I'm the Queen of Leaves
